New Zealand Police Strategic Research Agenda/ Te Rautaki Kaupapa Rangahau o Ngā Pirihimana o Aotearoa

The New Zealand Police Strategic Research Agenda identifies the areas of research priority most likely to translate into improved outcomes for New Zealand’s communities.


Our four research priorities are:

  • Forecasting and preventing crime and harm
  • Enhancing our Organisational Capability
  • Strengthening our sector partnerships
  • Connecting with communities


The Strategic Research Agenda encourages active collaboration between Police, stakeholder groups, researchers and partners, to build a New Zealand-specific evidence-base responsive to the evolving needs of the Police and the communities we serve.
